    Cute vid, Hunter.

    Thank you Grace. I love it here....though the cold can be ridiculous sometimes.
    Glad you had some good lessons!

    Hey everyone.

    7 more days until the vet comes out to check the melanoma I found on Isabella. I have been pretty depressed these past few days, worrying myself sick.

    It doesn't help that she tweaked her knee in the mud and I haven't been able to ride. I did spend 3 hours with her yesterday as she grazed and 3 hours today. I hopped on her bareback as she grazed and that was nice.

    Since I can't ride her, I have been pulling out some of the field horses that don't get much attention and have been grooming them. Prettied up a sweet little cremello mustang yesterday. She looked so pretty. Went out today and she was totally brown. Spent an hour getting the dredlocks out of her mane. She found a burr bush and rolled in it. Oh well.....

    Isabella just stands nearby and eats grass, perfectly content and happy that my grooming obsession is fixated elsewhere.

    Welcome to the new members!!

    Hugs Corgi.
    I had a gray gelding that lived to age 29 and a half.
    Hopefully your horse will check out OK.

    CW- hope you feel better soon. Can't hubby help you out of the bath? It's so nice to soak in hot water-does that help things ?

    Went out w. Hubs & a neighbor today-but after getting home, I was so cold I was just in tears. Now the fire is started & I'm hoping the temp will get into the 60's before bedtime. I'm not doing well this winter.

    Lots of great posts here, to catch up on!
    Stan, as always, great pictures. You have a gift. So sad about the horse but I'm so proud of the rodeo stock handlers that they recognized something wrong and sent the horse out without a rider. And the cowboys' gesture of carrying the horse out - awesome. What gentlemen. I'll tell this one to my city friends who think rodeo animals aren't treated well. My 31 year old mare has an incidental heart murmur - vet says they're not uncommon and you just never know when it will get worse.

    Prairie, my boss's home town is Minot - small world. His mother was one of the lucky ones - stranded but on a high point so no damage to her home. We're in Missouri so we got the other end of the stick - 2 hours away, flooding -- but here, drought. Probably worse in 2013 as so far we're about 12 inches behind on moisture.

    CW, go slow to go fast - take it easy to let your knee heal and it'll be faster in the long run to get you back on a horse!

    Eliduc - canine glue! I love it! May I borrow that phrase?
    Grace, What about using paste but not as much as in the past? She's come a long way for you, you have a totally different relationship now than when she first was being trailered....I'd bet that she would do well with just a partial dose. If she does great, you can cut it back further the next time; if she doesn't do well, then you know you need it and can keep using it. Good luck!

    Take care, all!

    You know what, I hadn't thought of it that way...we do have a different relationship, and she also trusts our trainer. She's also a lot healthier and fit, and almost a different horse. I will try that, thanks!!!

    Not that i'm carrot mad or driven by the estatic feeling I get when I manage to swipe a carrot from some unsuspecting poster, but, have to confess I feel great.
    I wonder how long I get to keep it this time.

    Cheers all and Hi to those new to this thread. There are other things in life other than horses. Take my salt water fish tank set up for coral, clown fish and sea horses Still trying to catch the sea horses which is just as well. The high temps we have been having around home has sent the water temp a little over the top and the clown fish did not survive. Poached. So its a delay on rounding up the sea horses which is no big deal as I was having trouble getting ones big enough to fit my saddle.
